Plainville Handgrip Strength Tells A Lot about a Woman!

Plainville ladies, this one is for you (and those who love you!). Men and women have different issues to deal with when it comes to their bodies. Of course! Layden Chiropractic recognizes these differences when it has to do with treating the spines and their various hurting states of our Plainville chiropractic male and female patients. Layden Chiropractic realizes the differences but focuses on an interesting finding about women’s hand-grip strength - not just her grip on a purse either! - and health issues including Plainville back pain.


Layden Chiropractic is amazed at the connections researchers make! Researchers have verified how grip strength is an indicator of an assortment of health issues. One is anemia. Anemia affects 13.9% of elderly people. Hand-grip strength and anemia in women is inversely related. Low hand-grip strength suggests anemia. (1) Another issue is that women with low hand-grip strength experienced poor quality of life as far as mobility, usual activities and pain/discomfort dimensions(2) A third hand-grip strength link to health is its capacity to monitor cognitive decline in adults over 60 years old. Hand-grip strength declines; cognition decreases(3) Layden Chiropractic finds these tests interesting for Plainville chiropractic patients and is really interested in what hand-grip strength says about Plainville back pain!


Another connection is made among back pain, hand-grip strength and a woman’s physical activity level in an over-50-year-old woman. Researchers tested the hand-grip strength of women. Each hand was tested with a dynamometer tool. Low hand-grip strength was classified as low grip strength of the woman’s dominant hand. A highly physical woman was described as one who did muscle-strengthening exercise at least 3 days a week. Women who had low hand-grip strength and a low physical active level were more likely to experience low back pain. (4) Layden Chiropractic does many tests during the Plainville chiropractic examination; now you know why! Layden Chiropractic does not want to miss anything!
